Visited as a family of 4 adults and one dog. We enjoyed the lovely walks around the grounds and we were very pleased the dog was also allowed into the house. Lunch was good and priced as would be expected, not cheap but didn't break the bank. The staff were very friendly, helpful and genuinely wanted to know if we... More

Really enjoyed this with 7 and 3 year old! Junior course, adventure playground, tree trail, beautiful walk around the lake and the castle itself is fascinating. The staff here are very friendly and full of information, they also really engaged with my children who loved it. Highly recommend excellent value for money.

Visited the castle and grounds for something to do with my daughter and granddaughter. The castle was smaller on the inside than it looks on the outside and seems like a more modern castle than an old one. We went in the maze but needed the granddaughter to get us out, she seems to have a built in sat nav... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Eastnor Castle and I’m very sorry to hear you had a wasted journey. As Eastnor is a family home and used for a wide range of events other than opening to the public, we do not open every day. We publish our opening times on a dedicated page on our website (as...

This was our first visit to this property, it costs £10 to get into but as members of English Heritage we got 50% off. The exterior of the castle did not look very inspiring but the interiors are very grand, lovely ceilings and wall coverings. We were not keen on the amount of stuffed wild animals and animal heads around... More

What a beautiful place! We had the most magical day here with our 2 and 4 yr old children. Walk around the lake was gorgeous and the play area entertained for hours! Great picnic location too. Maze was good fun and on the day we visited there was a fabulous animal show. Really good day out!

Visited today with my mum and dad on a day trip out and was pleasantly surprised by what Eastnor Castle has to offer. The castle itself is opulent and as a visitor you get to see quite a lot of the interior of the castle. Forget the National Trust - this is the real deal and for £10 entrance fee,... More
